Just for starters

It’s so cliché, isn’t it, to be writing about giving thanks on the eve of the weekend that is all about giving thanks?

So I’m not going to go on and on. I’m just going to say I’m thankful I made it through a family trip to Ireland this spring with my marriage and sanity (barely) intact.

I’m thankful we spent half the summer at Toronto harbourfront.

And the other half at the lake.

I’m thankful I have a dad who makes the banjo look cool.

And a teenage nephew who thinks toddlers are cool.

I’m thankful for Rob’s brother’s cottage.

And my cousin Laura’s home karaoke machine.

I’m thankful I get to fly this beautiful machine.

And parent this beautiful boy.

I’m thankful.



Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Hello from Blogher! Thanks for the comment and for visiting. I am LOVING the fact that you fly a sea plane... I watch them take off and land on Lake Union all day from my porch, but have never been in one!!

Great pictures!

I love the home karaoke machines. My grandma singing Frank Sinatra in my living room on Christmas eve (beautifully), to be followed by my brother & a friend singing the same song not so beautifully? Priceless memories.
